Stella Fischer, the one half of the Greek Connection's (as all my ex KZN scrapbooking students will recall) gorgeously beautiful daughter, Nicole (a model) got engaged to to a real 'boertjie', Leon Kruger. Sorry Leon, I hope you don't mind the 'boertjie' thing, but its not often that a gorgeous Greek lass marries a truly handsome Afrikaans Boer. Nicole, you and Leon together make for a stunningly handsome couple. So congrats to the newly engaged couple and their family. I am sure the wedding plans are already being masterfully schemed ... as I have heard through the grapevine.

Another ex KZN scrapping student of mine, Jenny Reid's daughter Robynne got married in April this year and I am sure you will agree that Robynne was a radiant bride (see photos below). I just love the apple green colour combination of the affair. Congrats to the newly wed couple and to Jenny and Bruce ... I am sure you are both very proud parents.
So after all this loving news, here's another layout I completed for our god son's 21st album.
The photos are of Duane with his Mom Belinda, Dad Carel and younger brother Kyle.
Can't wait, we are off to Bella Bella, the old Warmbaths area, tomorrow morning for our game lodge weekend. Looking forward to just blending with nature. No surprise then that all the camera gear are charged, packed and ready to go. I was naughty and spoilt myself with a new Canon 50-250mm lens which is also a great focal distance for portraiture photography which I of course enjoy the most. The 500mm lens also packed for a possible close-up of a buck or two.
Wishing you all a fab weekend, the first of Spring here in South Africa. Enjoy the warmer weather.

  7. Desire!!!!! Your photos are "out of this world." I know I say that everytime I come here -- guess I need to build up my vocabulary! LOL! The engaged couple make a stunning duo and the wedding photos are so beautiful -- the bride's dress is so lovely and I, too, love the green the attendants are wearing. Very, very pretty!
